successinlearningstarIt doesn’t matter whether it’s physical, psychological or even cyber. Bullying is a concern that we need to take very seriously.

If you suspect your child is being bullied, talk with your child and make an appointment with the teacher or school principal to discuss your concerns.

It is also important to encourage your child to report bullying behaviours to a trusted adult at school as quickly as possible after an incident of bullying. Bullying thrives in a culture of secrecy, so telling the school is very important.

Some signs of bullying might include:

• Unhappiness or mood swings with sudden temper tantrums
• Reluctance to go to school and changes in academic performance
